School District Bans Father-Daughter Dances After Single Mom Complains



quote:

In an effort to comply with state laws about gender discrimination, a Rhode Island school district has banned father-daughter dances and mother-son baseball games after a single mom complained that her daughter wasn't able to attend a dance.

The mother filed a complaint with the Rhode Island branch of the American Civil Liberties Union last May, saying that her child felt excluded from the dance because she did not have a father figure to take her. The dance was a longstanding event run by a parent-teacher organization.

"I think when schools tell girls 'You love dances' and boys 'You love baseball games,' I think that is going too far," Rhode Island ACLU executive director Steven Brown told talk-radio station WPRO-FM. "That is the whole point of having laws and policies to say public schools should not be the business of really encouraging such blatant stereotypes about what girls like and what boys like.

When will people realize that appeasing the minority will be the downfall of this great social experiment?

without getting too detailed or jumping to conclusions, my parents split when I was 3, I never knew my dad, my grandfather filled in as much as possible, I went to several father\son events with older cousins or a neighbor and even once with my mom. It was not a big deal, nor was it made to be a big deal...it was the situation and we dealt with it....I don't know what happened to the rest of the world but I turned out OK.

jesus, i'm a liberal, but that's too much. that kind of thing happens all over and single moms go to the dance and single dads go to the game and everyone thinks "oh thats nice", they don't gather around and stone them to death.

i'm sure the ACLU helps out actual people with real problems now and again but i think a lot of it is them just doing things to keep their jobs...

I never realized father-daughter dances were both racist and reinforcing for gender stereotypes.

I hate the way we cave in whenever one person bitches about something. I love those rare occasions where someone says "so fricking what."
